Starting plants from seed has never been easier! The culmination of four years of research and testing, our new Fast Start® Seedstarter represents a breakthrough in successful seedstarting. The new planting tray is made from a revolutionary cornstarch-based material that offers the sturdiness of plastic but will biodegrade under landfill conditions — there’s no need to wash and sterilize at the end of the season because you use a fresh one each year. The rigid, molded plastic reservoir is dishwasher safe, leak-proof and will last for years. And the new, reusable capillary mat is machine-washable. The Fast Start Success Kit includes everything you need to get started — just add seeds! You'll get two Fast Start Seedstarters, one brick of Eco-Co Coir (makes 10 quarts of planting mix), 24 wooden seedling markers and 2.5 oz. of Plant Health Care nutrient supplement.

I'm not sure of the durability as this is the first time I've used these. However, so far they are doing great! I have a Gardeners Supply three tier growing stand (with the lights) in my dining room and with the seed starter "soil", my seeds started to sprout two (2) days after starting! I start the seeds for the community gardens in town so I have 108 lettuce, 108 Swiss Chard, and 108 broccoli sprouting and will be ready to plant in the ground in 8 weeks! The only "CON" would be the seeds sprouted too soon. Normally they sprout 7-14 days, not just after 2 days. BUT, I'm not complaining. Wish I had known about these sooner. Great job!
100% germination, they were right
By Jockey Jim

Work great, they hold water for a week or so and germinated more quickly than my other self watering pots. I was a little upset that the pots themselves say they are degradable but I don't see replacements that I can order, aside from that, I really, really like these.

This was the first time I have tried starting veggies from seed ... this took all the guesswork out. Looking forward to using it again next year.
Easy and efficient
By Container Gardening Novice

I am amazed how well this worked as part of a system. I used the Fast Start Kit in conjunction with a full spectrum light and a heat mat. I had wonderful success. The seeds germinated quickly & the plants have their first real leaves. I will be potting the seedlings this week. I haven't vegetable-gardened since I was a child (w/ grandparents) & I'm feeling optimistic gardening could be a calling for me.
Success and easy to store

I don't care how black your thumb is, you have to try to fail with these. I ordered them for my daughter's grade school, and they could not be easier to use. Unlike peat pots, each cell is evenly watered and there is no mess. The planting tray could have been reused at least once (it is supposed to degrade in landfills, but it was very sturdy after we grew nasturtium seeds in them), but they were very easy to cut up so all the kids could take home a seedling. The trays and pad are easy to clean and store. I ordered some extra trays and coir seed starting mix, so they are ready to go for next year. There are cheaper ways to start seeds, but if you want 72 perfect seedling over and over again, skip the expensive lightbulbs and buy these trays.The only way they could make this better is if the coir block was pre-divided into three pieces.

In past years my seedlings usually failed, as I did not have the proper materials for success.This kit pulled it all together for me, and as I write this, I'm proud to say that all my seedlings are thriving and every one of them came up!
from Florham Park,NJ
Used it for seedstarting under grow lights and had great results. My plants are just in the four leaf stage, so not sure if the coir mix will provide enough for further growth. Will wait and see.
it really works, they grew!

the seeds sprouted quickly & grew into sturdy healthy plants, which were transplanted into my flower bed.
Yes to everything advertised.

Made of durable material, reuseable. Cell size more than adequate. This product is the best I have used, ever.
